The Stewart Rudnicki Memorial Fund

$42,300 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 388 people in 1 month
Created April 3, 2019
Fundraising Team
on behalf of Katrina Rudnicki

It is with enormous sadness that we announce the death of Stewart Rudnicki. Stewart passed away after a tragic accident on April 2, 2019. He is mourned by his family and friends, including his wife, Katrina, and their two young children.

This fund has been established to help defray the immediate funeral, memorial, and day-to-day costs that arrive hand-in-hand with unexpected tragedy. All proceeds will go directly to Katrina.

Stewart will forever be missed for his sense of humor, insatiable curiosity, and general good nature. Stew was that guy—the one always willing to lend a helping hand, or kick back for a chat, or play a game (woe to his opponents, though—he was a formidable competitor!).

As a kid, Stew couldn't sit still for more than five seconds. He'd zip from one new discovery to the next, always looking, exploring, wondering. And that quest for information and activity extended into adulthood. He was a tinkerer, a scientist, a nature enthusiast. 

But, the bulk of his energy went to those he loved. He was fiercely dedicated to his family—as father, husband, son, brother, uncle, and cousin.

Stewart was such a force of nature, and played such an enormous role in so many people's lives, it's hard to fathom his absence.

Hello to all.

Stewart's family is utterly overwhelmed and touched by the show of support you have all extended to them.

It means so much to know that Stew is remembered by so many, and with such affection.

Some of you have asked about services. The family is in the process of planning a memorial service, but at this point, the date and location are still to be determined.

Thank you again and again and again for your love and support.

Hello, everyone.

The outpouring of support for Katrina and her children has been awe-inspiring. Thank you to all who have contributed.

Given the response to this fund, we have increased the fundraising goal in the hope that enough money will be raised for Katrina to cover all funeral and memorial costs, as well as the immediate day-to-day needs that arise during a crisis like this.

Again, a huge thank you to everyone for your thoughts, memories, pictures, and contributions. You have offered a wonderful tribute to Stewart, and we are ever so grateful.

- Jessica Southwick (Stewie's cousin)
